Lightfoot ripped after blaming Chicago violence on “being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control”

by Paul Goldberg

Appearing on CNN, Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed rising Chicago violence on “being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control”

Lightfoot said, “We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons — that is hurting cities like Chicago.”

WATCH:

Lightfoot was ripped on Twitter for the apparent scapegoating.

One Twitter user wrote:

“Almost everyone in my area owns multiple guns.

“Gun violence in our area in 2020: 0 incidents.

“Guns are not the problem.

“It’s the culture/gangs/drugs.”

Another wrote:

“Wow, criminals don’t obey the 20,000 gun laws that are already on the books? Who knew?

“BTW Chicago ranks near the bottom for gun crime PROSECUTIONS.

“Keep playing that blame game.”

And then there’s Nick’s take on Mayor Lightfoot’s explanation…
